Abstract

The text accessibility is prominent for students learning through reading. This study aims at analyzing the statistics topics presented in an Indonesian school mathematics textbook. Particularly, the analyses focused on the accessibility of twenty statistical terms based on five attributes of statistics text accessibility. The initial findings were that (1) none of the statistical terms were connected to students’ prior experience; (2) the authors heavily focus on procedural knowledge yet present data with meaningful contexts; (3) statistical cognitions and data perspectives are arranged coherently across the terms (4) most of the data displays are referred for the purpose of organizing data, understanding graphs, and describing data; and (5) most of the referred visual information are placed close to and intertwined with the corresponding verbal information.
